This is the best option. Will try to get this done and at least recover my investment, rather than just leaving it there and losing my money in all ways. Thanks guys.

Not for the fly more combo unfortunately. Or did the price drop and it went out of stock before I could check?

I ordered the fly more combo, which seems to have gone out of stock now.

Great Choice, how much did it end up costing you.

Here is a photo that i took this weekend to keep you interested in the wait.

That is a great price, almost the same as I paid in Europe.

Here you go, for the video I will have to upload on YouTube will do sometime during the weekend.

Guys the Flymore combo is back on stock for 43k considering the other sellers are not selling it below 55k i still think this a great deal.Be quick if you are planning to buy.

Wow. Some clicks those !

The price is available just now on Amazon. It's at 43K for the Combo and 33K for the Mavic Mini. It's sold by Appario Retail. I just ordered one. I hope this time I don't end up with a bad product.

Thanks buddy, I managed to order it at 38.5k yesterday morning with instant EMI discount. Hoping to get it soon next week.

Great price even at 43k I feel, and there's abundant stock now so all those sellers on OLX who bought multiple of these discounted ones from Amazon to make a quick buck may just have to liquidate them ASAP or end up being in a loss.

Congratulations, I suppose you bought from some other seller previously at much higher prices. Appario should be good and much cheaper in comparison. Hope you get a good one this time around 👍

Though don't get disheartened if you get a Lemon. I managed to get a well sealed original pack of a faulty mavic mini from Appario earlier this month (gimbal dial on remote didn't work) and they took it back without any issues so just hope for the best.

Thanks camitesh. I had a beautifully packed, June imported one that I picked through Amazon , only to discover that the remote was not able to sync with the aircraft. The return and refund process was super smooth.

I can't wait for this delivery to happen. It's been a really long wait. Just last week, I found two sellers , one and Calcutta and the other at Bombay. Quotes for the Combo was ranting between 55K to 62K. Was about to place an order and for some reason , my card did not work. I guess I was lucky that the payment did not go through then.

How do you get to know about the availability and price drop on Amazon? By the time I read the update here and visit Amazon, stocks get over.

I just happened to browse through one early morning and saw the price drop to 40K range. Just one lucky morning.

This morning, it is back to the 70K ranges. If you give it like a fortnight or so and check, there may be offers back again.

I got to know about 'Keepa' (android app and well as chrome extension as i just checked). This little tool helps you keep track of any price drops for select products on Amazon India.

I just read about this app somewhere on FB posts discussing the DJI mavic mini price drops but wasn't expecting much from this app, especially the limited free version. There is limited quota in free version so use it wisely.

Anyhow, I downloaded it and set up the price drop alert only to be surprised to see an email from them last Friday (screenshots below)

Clicked on the product link within the email and ordered it finally after weeks of random checks for the mavic mini combo on Amazon.

Note: create price alert below 43k or 40k as you like for the right product only by copying this link

Good luck!

I use the price tracker chrome extension but Keepa seems to be a better option.
